UPM Raflatac has launched a new UV-hotmelt adhesive for use with transparent and opaque films in beverage and food labelling. The RC 7B adhesive performs well on a range of substrates, including glass and PET, and is suitable for applications requiring a no-label look.
RC 7B also provides excellent performance in challenging conditions, showing good adhesion and lasting clarity even when labels are applied to moist bottles. High temperature tolerance also makes this adhesive an optimal choice for packing and bottling processes involving pasteurization.
With good resistance to water-whitening at any stage of its lifecycle, including prolonged immersion in water after labelling, RC 7B assures quality labels to support sales of quality brands.
